Time span: 1996-02-20 to 2001-02-12

Description

This data set contains the level two data from the NEAR Multi-Spectral Imager (MSI) in the form of FITS images. The images have been calibrated and corrected. Details on the calibrations and corrections are given in the catalog directory and the file msical.txt. The images cover the cruise, Mathilde flyby, Earth flyby, Eros flyby, and Eros orbit phases of the mission. The data are in the form of FITS files with attached FITS headers and detached PDS labels. Data files contain one image per file. Geometry data is included in a geometry subdirectory on the first volume (_2001) of each series.

The PDS data sets and associated volumes and dates are as follows:

NEAR-A-MSI-3-EDR-CRUISE1-V1.0 - NICRU1_2001,2 ; 1996051 - 1997175

NEAR-A-MSI-3-EDR-CRUISE2-V1.0 - NICRU2_2001,2 ; 1997179 - 1998022

NEAR-A-MSI-3-EDR-CRUISE3-V1.0 - NICRU3_2001,2 ; 1998027 - 1998356

NEAR-A-MSI-3-EDR-CRUISE4-V1.0 - NICRU4_2001,6 ; 1998358 - 2000010

NEAR-A-MSI-3-EDR-EROS/FLY/BY-V1.0 - NIERFB_2001,4 ; 1998357 - 1998357

NEAR-A-MSI-3-EDR-EARTH-V1.0 - NIERTH_2001 ; 1998023 - 1998026

NEAR-A-MSI-3-EDR-MATHILDE-V1.0 - NIMATH_2001,2 ; 1997176 - 1997178

NEAR-A-MSI-3-EDR-EROS/ORBIT-V1.0 - NIEROS_2001 to 2330 ; 2000011 - 2001043

The data set NEAR-MSI-6-RDR-INSTRUMENT-INFO-V1.0 is also found on volumes NICRU1_2001, NICRU2_2001, NICRU3_2001, NICRU4_2001, NIERFB_2001, NIERTH_2001, NIMATH_2001, and NIEROS_2001. A total of 135740 Mb of data are held on 351 volumes. The Eros orbit volumes (NIEROS_2001 to NIEROS_2330 are stored on DVD's NIEROS_3001 to NIEROS_3039. All other volumes are stored on DVD volumes NICRUZ_3001 and NICRUZ_3002.
